Every plan includes all platform features. We recommend the Growth plan for beginner course creators so that you can grow your business at your own pace. When you are ready to eliminate the platform fees, you can subscribe to the Monthly or Yearly Creator plan.
You always start with the Growth plan, unless you choose otherwise. You can then upgrade or downgrade your creator plan at any time, as many times as you need.
There are no trials involved, as we understand that most people don't have a fixed schedule for when their online business will launch. Work at your own pace while you develop your business, accessing all platform features. Publish your first course when you are ready, and grow your business with minimal cost using the Growth plan.

Later on, if you want to use your own custom domain you can request us to activate the yoga-school.com domain and we will take care of it.
